    Curtis Mayfield - Move on up (Curtom demo)

    Just a few months after 'Move On Up' was released in a number of European countries Curtis came over here and did live shows on BBC's Old Grey Whistle Test , Germanys Beat Club TV show and probably others too. I would of thought organising these shows and bringing a full live band would take a few months preperation. So did he come here on the back of 'Move On Up' being a hit or was it released knowing he was already scheduled for a promotional tour for his solo career. Why was it Move On Up that was picked considering it was already a one year old album track. Did it have something to do with the UK Soul / Allnighter scene liking uptempo dance music ? Here is Move On Up on Beat Club, it take three attempts to get it started, the look on the drummers face says "It's been a long day". Curtis does say on his intro the song was very popular internationally. https://youtu.be/sF1uF-28MZE?t=649 ***cant embed on here, probably for copyright reasons in Germany

    Curtis Mayfield - Move on up (Curtom demo)

    Can i put a Word doc on here ? Something i've been working on for a while, Curtis publishing demos after he left The Impressions and went solo. These were done around the same time as 'Move On Up'. 5 EPs with 4 tracks on each, 17 by Curtis, 2 by Five Stairsteps and 1 by Major Lance. The Curtis ones are up there with his best work. One of the greatest artists in music. Word = Curtis Demos.rtf

    DJ Re-service on record label meaning?

    These are usually associated to Columbia/ CBS Records pressings, Columbia, Epic, Philly Int. etc... The Motown one above could of been pressed at one of their plants. I don't know what 'Re-service' means I think it's just their way of stating it's a demo. Seems to have started early 70s.

    Rarest Tamla Motown Lp

    Is it Motown Memories Volume 2 ? When i used to collect Motown albums vol 2 was always a lot harder to find than vol 1. It had Barbara McNair's "You're gonna love my baby" on it. Hard to find but not one of the rarest.
